HOV Lane Striping Starts TONIGHT Along Interstate 15 in Clark County
CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will restrict three inside travel lanes along Interstate 15 in a moving striping operation between Sahara Avenue and the South 215 Beltway occurring nightly from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m., beginning the evening of May 1 and concluding the morning of May 5, in Clark County.
Crews are converting express lanes into one general purpose lane and one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane, starting with the southbound lanes before moving onto the northbound lanes. Motorists, as a result, will see changes in the striping, including the HOV diamond symbol painted along the inside travel lane. However, drivers should still treat these as express lanes until the entire HOV system is completed later this month.
The improvements are part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue, which broke ground in 2016. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 95 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. Check the Project Neon website (NDOTProjectNeon.com) or Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages (@NDOTProjectNeon) for up to date information. There is also a free smart phone app available, plus a hotline available in both English and Spanish at: 702-293-NEON (6366). NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
